'Big Thrills' Coming to Trials HD After NovemberS

Forty more white-knuckle, teeth-gnashing tracks are on the way for Trials HD in an expansion pack, due for release sometime after mid-November, titled "Big Thrills." Ten more user-created tracks, chosen by contest, will be also part of the download.

RedLynx, announcing the expansion yesterday, said the 10 user-created tracks will be fully credited in the game, and their creators will receive cash or prizes for being chosen. A $5,000 prize will go to the first place winner, $1,000 to the third place, with fourth-through 10th place getting a Trials HD sweatshirt and flag (which the first three winners also will receive).

Full details on eligibility and how to enter a created level are available through the site BigThrillsContest.com. The submission deadline is Aug. 18 and winners will be announced Nov. 15, giving you an idea of when the expansion will be available.
